In a recent submission, the country director of the World Bank, Pierre Laporte revealed that the World Bank gave Ghana over $500 million to fight COVID-19.
According to him, the World Bank gave Ghana $430 million to fight COVID-19 and also added that they also gave the country an additional $130 million purposely for the purchase of vaccines.
After the contents of his submission went viral, many Ghanaians have reacted to it and many people are asking the government to account for the money as they do not believe all the money was used to fight COVID-19.
Some reactions from Ghanaians are;
@khophi_bilo – Nana Addo be Gh Hushpupi

@DelaliHodasi – If the gov’t cant account for the covid funds from the world bank & rest and prove what it was meant for! Then e-levy is not needed @ all# Corruption is at its peak# Beloved Ghana…
